    Gladd he finally came out! I think its funny that people get angry about these figures getting released in generations. Technically i can see why, but people were only buying the Botcon set at an inflated price to complete their classic collection. now the set will probably go down in price to an acceptable level in a couple of years.

    They're exclusives. They're still not going to be cheap even after this.

    Its going to be "cheaper", it will still be expensive relatively, but for the rest of us who wants an authentic TC, we will be looking to the mass release, which means at least, there is a much less demand and the same supply of the set. The market will determine the price, but it will go down a little at least.

    Oh please Hasbro!!! PLEASE!!!! (gets down on his hands and knees) Release Skywarp and Ramjet for a second time!! Maybe a two pack?!! I promise I will not forsake you for any other toy company....even for henkei-formers from Takara!!! (forgive my sin for purchasing Henkei Megatron fore I was a weak and easily tempted soul, I must repent) Man, that Thundercracker is beautiful, cartoon accurate and everything. Oh he's even got the Decepticon insignia on his chest like Dirge, oh man I must have this to go with Acid Storm and Starscream

    Heh, you beat me to the post. Its kinda silly how many posts mention "people being angry about a re-release". I've seen very little anger.

    I look forward to getting this figure and putting him on display. (Have that wave on preorder with bbts.)

    I really love the colors and how the red pops.

    I'm one of the weirdos who paid ebay prices (individually) for a botcon set and have no problems with henkei or Generations releases. I paid what I felt they were worth to me. I'm glad everyone else is getting a chance to complete their set. Hell even though I have all the original releases I've been buying the new versions because one can never have too many seekers however I do prefer the paint apps on the Botcon TC to the Generations version. Hopefully we get a Sunstorm one day. I know Hasbro said they'd eventually get to him but looks like we're going to have to wait until after the movie line.
    But between Generations and Reveal the Shield we've been pretty spoiled lately.

    hes nice but the henkei version does manage to mirror the G1 crackers scheme much more closely, that version doesnt necessarily shout 'thundercracker' to me.

    If you're reading the IDW ongoing comic, it's ironic that it's taking us so long to get an official Hasbro Thundercracker. He just became to annoyed with the great war to have his figure made. LOL!

    Boggles my mind that it took this long to get a Thundercracker repaint. Thrust and Dirge BEFORE Thundercracker?! What gives Hasbro?! Its 2011!!

    Not impressed I thought it would be better, regardless though once I get this guy I can store my Botcon set away for safe keeping.

    I think its so funny the suckers that paid $280.00 for repaints the stuff that's coming out of botcon in resent years suck. Hope those sets go down to $50 bucks that's all there worth ;)
